We stayed here for a week and had a superior sea view room which was definitely worth upgrading to. The view across the bay of Portofino was beautiful. Very friendly reception staff, room was lovely and spacious and a lovely bathroom. Very clean, the housekeeping staff were excellent. Huge pool with plenty of sun loungers. Not much 'saving of sunbeds'... More

This 4 star hotel lives up to all expectations. Facilities are excellent, rooms spacious and comfortable and Restaurant food excellent. We thankfully booked half board, so were able to enjoy the sumptuous (Michelin quality) dinners in the glorious balcony restaurant at costs significantly below the menu price. A good range of wines with many local wines at reasonable cost. Minor... More

We stayed here for one night as part of an Insight tour so it was not a hotel we chose ourselves. Our room was OK with a small balcony with a glimpse of the sea. The bar and deck area were good. There is a great walk you can do that leads you along the coast to Rapallo town which... More

We can't say it was a fabulous or a great experience but it was a nice stay. The location was good and the staff was friendly. The bathroom in our room had a plumbing issue. When you flushed the toilet, a horrible piercing sound would occur. Told front desk and they took car of it immediately. However, at 2:30 AM... More

Really great service from all its staff made this a really enjoyable stay. This is a hotel with all the facilities one could want...even the weather forecast on ones' pillow each night! Nice food in the quite pricey restaurant too. There is a fair walk to the seaside, lovely,Town - 15 minutes - including quite steep slopes, maybe not suitable... More

Their package Summer Silver is overpriced with a very bad service and experience!! The swimming pool area has nothing special. The view is not on Portofino but rather a building in constuction. The bar is pool bar is overpriced with a very long service (expect half an hour to be served). We paid 123 Euro a head for the summer... More

Couldn't fault the hotel. The facilities are excellent especially the extra large swimming pool. The staff are friendly and helpful and the breakfast buffet has so many choices. The hotel is a 15 minute elevated walk from the town and therefore may not suit everyone. One warning is that the hotel restaurant is very pricey. The outside of the hotel... More

My husband booked through voyage privée so our stay came with 2 free welcome drinks and 2 free 30 min massages at the spa (nice!). Our room faced the pool/sea, but the construction site nearby was unsightly and sometimes loud. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are clean. Yes, the beds are on the firm side, the wifi...

This review responds to comments (as well as my own) on the hotel, but also, I hope provides some tips in enjoying this beautiful part of Italy.
